A loud, lame-brained romantic comedy from the (very) broad directorial brush of Rohit Shetty, SRK's over-hyped vehicle sees the charismatic but ageing actor badly miscast and easily overshadowed by his leading lady, Deepika Padukone.

The movie chugs along for most of its 2 hours and 20 minutes searching for comedy and characters in a frantically overplotted story.

Shetty's need to maintain his characters' romantic heroism constantly grates against his depictions of their ridiculousness.

ShahRukh is himself, the star. Deepika Padukone fits the role of Meena perfectly and looks beautiful as the Southern belle.

It's just enough of a change of pace for Rohit Shetty to seem like a radical step forward without being so much of one as to be unrecognizable, as it's still funny and exciting, and the visuals pop.

Khan's gift for effortlessly moving between comedy and love scenes is complemented by Padukone's striking beauty and comic chops.

This Bollywood farce, dressed in the colourful costumes of a romantic adventure with music, is an oversize comedy and a couple of hours (plus intermission) of sheer escapism

Like the southbound train of the title, Bollywood superstar Shah Rukh Khan's romantic action-comedy-musical Chennai Express barrels forward with barely a stop to rest.
